- India won a match at Lords first time after 2014
- England lose by 151 runs
- Hyderabad’s Siraj top bowler in 2nd innings
India created history at historic Lords by beating the host team by 151 runs in the second test on Monday. Indian bowlers Mohammad Shami, Bumra and Mohammad Siraj did the miracle for India with the bat in the second innings. When India was about to be bowled out cheaply in their second innings, the pace bowler Shami and spin bower Bumra stood their ground and scored runs. Shami made 52 valuable runs. This is the first time Indian team triumphed at Lords after Dhoni’s team won famously in 2014.
Players from both the teams were indulging in verbal clashes throughout the day. When only half an hour of play was left, Mohammad Siraj of Hyderabad bowed Jimmy Anderson and celebrated victory by plucking the wicket as a sign of win.
India had declared its second innings closed at 298 for 8 wickets leaving England a challenge to win by scoring 272 runs in 60 overs. But England proved to be unequal to the challenge and collapsed under India’s pace attack. While Indian bowlers Shami and Bumra deified England’s pace bowlers in India’s second innings, Indian pace bowlers dictated terms to England batsmen who were out without scoring.
Hyderabad’s bowler Mohammad Siraj took four wicket and stood on the top of the table followed by Bumra who bagged three wickets. Ishant Sharma, another pace bowler, claimed two wicket and the batting hero Shami had got one wicket ensuring a sensational win for India.
